The official website for the ComicFesta Anime brand's television anime of Iburō's JimiHen—!! ~Jimiko o Kaechaū Jun Isei Kōyū~ (Pure Heterosexual Intercourse That Transforms a Plain Girl) began streaming a promotional video on Wednesday. The video reveals and previews the anime's theme song "After Five Cinderella" by Saki Hazuki.
The story follows the relationship between two co-workers, office worker Rena Yukuhashi and businessman Ryōhei Hachiya. Yukuhashi seems like the plainest woman at her company, but she transforms into a stunning beauty when she dresses up outside the office. Flustered upon seeing Yukuhashi transformed, Hachiya inadvertently utters what sounds like an invitation to get to know each other better — without realizing they are standing in front of a love hotel.
The "premium edition" of the anime with adult scenes will stream on the ComicFesta Anime website on January 3 at 24:00 (effectively, January 4 at midnight). The "on-air edition" of the anime will premiere on the Tokyo MX channel on January 3 at 25:00 (January 4 at 1:00 a.m.) A special about the new program will air on December 27 at 25:00 (December 28 at 1:00 a.m.) on Tokyo MX.

The ComicFesta Anime brand announced on Thursday that its newest television anime is based on Yupopo Orishima's Kuro-Gyaru ni Natta Kara Shinyū to Yatte Mita (I Became a Kuro-Gyaru* so I F***ed My Best Friend.) manga. The retitled Kuro-Gyaru ni Natta Kara Shinyū to Shite Mita anime will premiere on the Tokyo MX channel on April 4, but the first four-minute episode is already available online on YouTube and ComicFesta Anime's own service.
* The kuro-gyaru in the manga's title is a contraction of ganguro gyaru, a fashion trend that combines a dark tan with the gyaru (gal) subculture popularized in Japan in the 1990s. The manga's compiled book volume cover translates kuro-gyaru (overly) literally as "Black Gal" and spells out "F***ed."
The "gender-swap romantic comedy" centers around Shion Chihara and Rui Chihaya, two tight college friends who are unrivaled in picking up women. One day, Shion is given a drug by a mysterious woman and wakes up in a woman's body. It was love at first sight for Rui, despite not initially realizing that this woman before him is actually his best friend Shion.
Old Man Dream: Well, I went ahead and already spoiled myself over later events in the series. Looks like that gets fairly messy with handling its little plot twist involving Rika, Satoko, and the mentioned story element having some assume there's some sort of...

Old Man Dream: ...Umineko crossover. May have liked the idea with better handling of the story development. But it's basically made Satoko a rather unlikable character now.

Taka: It's a gigantic mech franchise. I haven't seen Macross myself. I know it's a big one.

Old Man Dream: Guess we don't get it. Make things short and sweet: Through some unintentional legal wranglings, Harmony Gold's owned international rights to the Macross name for decades and its Japanese developers, disgusted by the move, had not allowed...

Old Man Dream: ...many later Macross anime outside Japan because that would profit Harmony Gold. Macross was one of three anime titles used by HG in the 1980s to edit together the popular Robotech series popular with fans during that time. Under this deal...

Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
